EXCLUSIVE: Tests find sickened family has 50.3 ppm of Corexit’s 2-butoxyethanol in swimming pool — JUST ONE HOUR NORTH OF TAMPA (lab
"Our heads are still swimming," stated Barbara Schebler of Homosassa, Florida, who received word last Friday that test results on the water from
her family's swimming pool showed 50.3 ppm of 2-butoxyethanol, a marker for the dispersant Corexit 9527A used to break up and sink BP's oil in the
Gulf of Mexico.
I just saw this on Facebook this morning and I'm completely nauseous!!!
I wrote a long email to friends and family and included alot of information. I'm going to recreate that email here in the hope that all of you will
pass this info out far and wide.
I wish this was a theory. Unfortunately, lab results are included in the source material. The part that REALLY sickens me, literally AND
figuratively, is that it came in from either the wind or the rain, quite likely both.
All the wild looking stories of mass genocide in the south are looking more real with each passing day. Didn't the web bot say this would be the
"summer of hell"? I remember something about mass death and bowels evacuting... all of that makes me think of the toxic effects of the COREXIT
How Feds can say that NO Corexit found nearshore: EPA SETS DISPERSANT SCREENING LEVEL at 750 ppm!
Here's what wiki says about the toxicity of COREXIT:
The relative toxicity of Corexit and other dispersants are difficult to determine due to a scarcity of scientific data. The manufacturer's
safety data sheet states "No toxicity studies have been conducted on this product," and later concludes "The potential human hazard is: Low."
According to the manufacturer's website, workers applying Corexit should wear breathing protection and work in a ventilated area. Compared with
12 other dispersants listed by the EPA, Corexit 9500 and 9527 are either similarly toxic or 10 to 20 times more toxic. In another preliminary EPA
study of eight different dispersants, Corexit 9500 was found to be less toxic to some marine life than other dispersants and to break down within
weeks, rather than settling to the bottom of the ocean or collecting in the water. None of the eight products tested are "without toxicity",
according to an EPA administrator, and the ecological effect of mixing the dispersants with oil is unknown, as is the toxicity of the breakdown
products of the dispersant.
I'll be back with more info. I'm just sick over this.........................
This article (THE TITLE ARTICLE OF THIS THREAD) is an excellent example of why we should check our own water. NO ONE ELSE is going to do it for us.
